your probably do for a timing belt and a head gasket if not recently done. The head gaskets seem to be the most common thing going wrong with that motor from my expieriences working for honda. Another common problem is the C.V axles are not very strong and might be something to replace sooner or later. Depending on what your paying for it, it might not be a bad venture just have someone expierienced look at it if your not sure. Be sure to check underneath the car and check the oil and Coolant. If the oil has a whitish color to it or the antifreeze has a brown tint to it, the head gasket is gone. Also take it out and drive it a little hard, not crazy but try to get it to normal temperature which could be 1/4 on the needle. Ive had quite a few problems with head gaskets on 92-96 civics.
